KJ West One - Connoisseurs of Sound - Est. 1965

We had a full day technical training at Devialet in Paris yesterday focusing on what makes Devialet a revolutionary audio product.

First of all, it is ADH technology, a core of all Devialet models. 

"A" is for Class A amplifier (control of the voltage), that is pure analogue conventional amplification, that makes the sound very natural and musical (not digital in any way)

"D" is for class D amplifier (control of the current output), that is like power steering to the Class A, making the performance very efficient. 
"H" is for hybrid of Class A and Class D working together - "D" provides current to "A" but only "A" "touches" the sound. 

Thanks to all this and despite its size, Devialet provides full Class A amplifier listening experience, and is able to drive some very serious loudspeakers.

We listened to Magico Q3 driven by Devialet 240 yesterday - very impressive indeed! We will do Focal Diablo Utopia (pictured) next week, join us if you are interested. By appointment only.
